Went here this past winter while visiting Munich. It was an easy day trip from downtown Munich out here...took the train to the last stop on S5 (Hershing) then took a cab from the train station to the monestary. You could probably walk it but there was a ton of snow when we were there so the cab was just easier. The atmosphere at this place was pretty cool. It was like a cafeteria style beer hall, you go get your food then there is a seperate place to get beers. In the next room over there are big long tables to sit down and enjoy the food and drink. I had a dopplebock which was amazing. Overall this was a very good day trip, probably my favorite of anything we did while in the Munich area.

While my Overall Review is 3.75, it's lower because of service and selection. For eating at a Biergarten like this one, it doesn't really matter what the service or selection is like since it's pretty universal across most Biergartens, so I would like to give an arbitrary overall review of 4.4/4.5. So, on to the review!

Atmosphere - I visited in late June 2012 and had beautiful weather for a visit. Went with two friends from Munich via the S-Bahn to Herrsching, from which you can hike through beautiful woods up to the Kloster. I recommend this way since it is not only very scenic, but it also helps build up a thirst for excellent beer. Plus the Kloster is situated on top of a hill that overlooks farmland and the Alps on a clear day, so it's hard to go wrong. Few Biergartens, let along breweries in general, can probably offer this same experience, so it's worth it for the hike and views alone.

Quality - The beer was very good, with the standard Helles-Dunkel-Weißbier offerings prevalent in Munich and Bavaria. We each ordered one of the three, and I won't go into reviewing these beers in particular since other people more qualified than I have done so in the individual beer reviews section. However, they were all very good.

Service/Selection - The Kloster works in typical Biergarten fashion (cafeteria style), so you won't find a wide range of foods like you would in a place like Augustiner-Keller in the middle of Munich. Additionally, my friends and I were hoping to eat Stekerlfisch or chicken at a little food-stand area just outside the Klosterbiergarten, but they both closed up shop after we arrived, thus limiting the selection that you could probably find otherwise.

Food - I had a plate of Schweinbraten (roast pork) with Bratkartoffeln (roasted potatoes), and it was very good, although it didn't knock my socks off. It was my first time having it as well, and as a first-time experience, you can't go wrong.

Value - The price of drinks and food seemed comparable to what I was used to getting in Munich, although I can't remember specifics, but come with at least 20 Euros if you plan on ordering a Maß (1 liter glass) and a plate of food.

This place is as near to perfection as I may ever find! I fully endorse all the other reviews. PLEASE NOTE: The train to Herrshing is now the S8. All else remains the same! And that's a GOOD thing!

The atmosphere at Andechs was the most impressive, and a close second was the Dopplebock Dunkel. My wife sampled the Apfel and it was delicious, but one of those things that you can only handle a halbe of. We also sampled a limited run of Maibock, which was fantastic.

The grounds are immaculate and the food is top notch. Classic Bavarian wurst, cheese, and gigantic servings of ham and chicken. We were there on a Saturday and it wasn't crazy busy, the crowd was an even mix of locals, tourists, and bachelor parties! Entertaining all around. Since we arrived to Herrshing at around 10:30, we just missed the bus (which runs every hour at 10 past the hour). We opted for a cab from the train stop for 12 euro.

Bottom line, GO THERE NOW!
